A primary school in eastern Turkey was the subject of an arson attack by PKK terrorists on Friday, a local education official said.

The attack in Ipekyolu, Van province, saw terrorists throw a Molotov cocktail through a window, damaging walls, local education director Sukrullah Yavuzer said.

No casualties were reported.

Last week a kindergarten in the same area was targeted in a similar attack, the third such incident since June.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015. Since then, PKK terrorist attacks killed more than 700 security personnel and also claimed the lives of many civilians, including women and children, while nearly 8,000 PKK terrorists were killed in army operations.
